ZOTAC GeForce GTX 670 AMP! Edition 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Fri, May 18 2012 | 3:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ZOTAC`s GTX 670 AMP! Edition is built around an unmodified NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 PCB which provides a great foundation, on top of which ZOTAC is using a large triple slot cooler. GPU clock has been bumped by well over 100 MHz, which lets the card surpass GTX 680 in our testing, with a 3% performance lead."

Diablo III Performance Test: Graphics & CPU
     Fri, May 18 2012 | 3:10P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After 11 years in the making and more setbacks than we care to count, Blizzard has finally unleashed a third installment to its cult classic dungeon crawler. Having waited over a decade, the arrival of Diablo III was a bittersweet moment for eager fans. In what must've felt like a cruel joke, missteps in Blizzard's execution prevented many users from accessing content throughout last Tuesday. While we disagree with making single player components online-only, there isn't much mere mortals like us can do about it. What we can do, however, is beat the hell out of Diablo III with today's finest hardware. Blizzard has somewhat of a reputation for making highly scalable titles that run on virtually any gaming rigs, so that's largely what we expect from the developer's latest offering...

Kingston Wi-Drive 16 GB
     Fri, May 18 2012 | 3:10P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With USB drives a dime a dozen nowadays, Kingston is trying to combine affordable flash storage with a certain degree of connectivity in the Wi-Drive. Employing a wireless hotspot, the Wi-Drive allows up to three connected devices to stream files to their display - be it notebooks, iOS or Android units. We take the 16 GB Wi-Drive for a spin to see if it packs enough power and flexibility to shine.

Inno3D iChiLL GTX 670 HerculeZ 3000 Graphics Card Review
     Fri, May 18 2012 | 3:10P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It seems each manufacturer is going to take its own unique approach to building a card around the GTX 670 GPU with some going for compact models and others heading for larger PCBs with significant cooling solutions and overclocks. Inno3D fall into the second category and it is their custom GTX 670 which we have on our test bench today."

How NVIDIA GeForce GRID Will Change Video Games
     Fri, May 18 2012 | 2:44P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA recently unveiled two new graphics technologies at the 2012 GPU Technology Conference: NVIDIA GeForce GRID and NVIDIA VGX. You're probably not familiar with either of these 'Cloud Computing' technologies, but in the next few years they'll develop to become quite commonplace. One day in the not so distant future, you could find yourself choosing between a NVIDIA GeForce GRID subscription or NVIDIA GeForce graphics card to play the latest high-end game. In this editorial I explore what these two new technologies offer, and how they will change the graphics industry.

We have looked at several KFA2 cards in the past and have been impressed with their hardware so far. Is the new GTX680 EX OC worth the high asking price?

Hard Drive Overdrive: Corsair's Accelerator SSD Cache Reviewed
     Fri, May 18 2012 | 2:44P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid State Drives s are a fabulous way to boost a system's performance, but for all their strong points, they aren't an easy upgrade for a lot of people. Performance can vary significantly between manufacturers, only the most expensive drives can replace the need for an HDD in an enthusiast / data-heavy system, and reinstalling a full suite of software from scratch is a major headache. Corsair's Accelerator Series family of SSDs is designed to reduce the barriers to the SSD option by offering a solution that's accessible without the need to wipe your existing HDD or create a storage plan that ensures you make the best possible use of a small SSD, while leaving the bulk of your data on a rotating platter ...

NVIDIA Reveals GK110 GPU - Kepler at 7.1B Transistors 15 SMX Units
     Fri, May 18 2012 | 1:28P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The full GK110 chip is comprised of 15 SMX units for a total CUDA core count of 2,880 compared to the 1,536 found in GK104 that is an 88% increase in functional units. NVIDIAs documentation does indicate that typical products will actually only use 13 of 14 of these SMX units so you should expect to see Tesla cards sporting either 2496 or 2688 CUDA cores."

The NZXT Phantom 410 comes with everything you may need to build you rig. The addition of the USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports are nice. Needless to say the built-in fan controller was sweet and there is no need for spending more money on a separate fan controller. . ."

Razer Orochi Black Chrome Elite Bluetooth Gaming Mouse @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, May 18 2012 | 1:28P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer has been a leader in gaming peripherals since 1998 and begun where in here in sunny San Diego. No conversation about mice and keyboards can go without the word Razer being thrown in several times. Mice like the Naga, DeathAdder and Mamba are or will be classics. So, if you were in the market for a smaller more mobile gaming mouse who would you call on? Razer. And that mouse would be the Orochi. Small in size but big in performance. According to Razer anyways, so we will find out for ourselves."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
